James White from Gritt recently wrote an article titled, “How to Get Rid of Mice in Your Food Storage and Garden“.  He stated, “Since mice have pretty poor eyesight, they rely on their noses to find food”. “Overpowering their senses with peppermint essential oil is a great way to deter curious mice from entering your garden or storage areas, but won’t do much to get rid of existing mice”.  “Soak cotton balls in undiluted peppermint essential oil and place them around problem areas”. “The overwhelming scent of peppermint will deter new mice from building homes in your garden or storage”. “You can also use a peppermint spray and generously coat entrances to storage to keep pests away”.  Buy your peppermint essential oil from America’s Favorite Mint Farmer, Peppermint Jim (HERE)
